I have enjoyed teaching your students so far this year. They are all making great progress! I hope you are enjoying their practice at home. Starting in the 2nd six weeks each student will be required to keep track of their practice time with practice charts.
Students should have everything they need for band by this point. This includes instruments, band binder, sheet protectors, and their Essential Elements book. All of this can be purchased at Ntune Music in Abilene located on Grape Street. If a student does not have any or all of their materials their grades will begin to suffer.
